I only have the tda10046 data sheet at hand. Non-hierarchical
and alpha=1 are distinct register settings, and the HP/LP selector
is a seperate bit. IIRC the same is true for MT352.

Do DibCom data sheets disagree?

EN 300 744 says "Non-hierarchical transmission uses the same uniform
constellation as the case with  = 1", but the mapping of the bits
in the deinterleaver is different.
